Every autumn, I fall head-over-heels for foods and flavors that stereotypically fit the season – squash, sage, clove, chai. So even before tasting this creamy banana chai smoothie, I knew I would love it simply because it showcases one of my favorite spice blends.
I can’t take full credit for this recipe. I typically don’t follow recipes for smoothies; instead, I throw a banana and whatever I can scrounge up from the fridge in a blender and if it tastes decent, I consider it a success. One recent evening, my brilliant best friend, Madi, texted the recipe for a chai banana smoothie that she came up with. Everything was already in my pantry, so I set out to make it the next day…before I knew it, I was telling my genius girlfriend how amazing she is and begged her to let me share the recipe on my blog. Of course, Madi agreed because she’s a peach.
